    I Agree! Should Be " I Am Against Abuse Of Everyone"

    I know that boys and men do for a fact get just as abused as women can. I grew up seeing this all the time. I have seen young boys and men quiver and shake in fear the same as I felt in myself and witnessed in my female friends. I have watched them cower down, cry and bleed...
